I have a Gateway PC model number DXR4380G-UW308 running Windows 8. My old roommate changed the administrator password and has moved out. I can't reach him and need to delete him off my computer but without having ADM PRIV I can't. What is the workaround. Thank you

OK, if you have physical access to the PC, then you can do a LINUX disk on a USB. Start your search for that type of solution! Come back if you need help.
